I develop software in java. I have been using geany on a ubuntu linux
system. Due to conditions beyond my control I have had to go to Windows
10. I have installed geany on my Windows 10 system but I am unable to get
geany to find my java source code. I don't think java is included with my
installation of geany.
How do I install geany on my Windows 10 system so I can edit java code,
compile it, and execute it?
Thanks, Dan H
I find the Scribble feature very useful and use it frequently. My editor
tab settings are 4 characters, but in Scribble the tab spacing is 8.
I wonder if there is any way to modify the tab setting in Scribble?

When editing a Nim file (.nim), syntax highlighting works, but there is
"Compile" item in the "build" pull down menu.
How can I enable this item. Furthermore how can "jump" to the line in
error if compilation fails.
Many thanks for a hint,
Under Ubuntu Linux, what is the recommended technique to upgrade Geany
as newer versions are released?
All I've been able to find online is info on how to do an initial
install, and some upgrade suggestions that didn't work.
I've put a ton of time into customizing my install, and I for sure don't
want to screw up and have an "upgrade trick" wipe all that out.
I am only in interested in installing stable code, not bleeding edge
Thanks in advance!
REF: Ubuntu 20.04, Geany 1.36
1st of all I want to give Lex kudos for the previous absolutely QUICK
response to my 2 previous requests.
2nd I have been using Geany on my 3 PI-4s for approximately 2-3 years.
Im, by no means. A pro yetstill learning.
3rd Since it seems a long time between the Raspberry IOS to include the
later Geany updates, I would like to compile the v 1.37.1 code.
I have downloaded the Geany source code and put it on my
development PI-4 according to Lexs instructions.
Ive tried to follow Lexs
https://wiki.geany.org/howtos/configurebuildmenu User Guide.
I get to the part about setting up the Set Build Commands and I get
confused. I dont intend to make any changes to the code. I just want to a
bit newer than 1.33.
One final question: what character can be used as the 1st character of a
folder name to make it appear at the top of the FileManager listing?

All of what I've done subsequent to that is purely configuration setup, mainly coloration and keyword info in a new config file for a Geany-unsupported compiler that I frequently use for developing embedded system code for PIC processors.

We are happy to announce a new release of Geany!
This is a bug fix release following the recent release of Geany 1.37.
On Windows, Geany crashed on startup without an existing configuration
file. This release fixes this bug and Geany will startup normally again.
Other operating systems were not affected.
As usual, all downloads can be found on
